Shadowhunter Sunday - Episode 6 - Iron Sisters



I actually like what they've done with the Iron Sisters so far. Hopefully it stays that way.

I will always love how Izzy and Clary interact, they are a wonderful duo. OMG you guys... Izzy and the Yin Fin is killing me. It's so heartbreaking to watch this. When her hand was shaking when she was in Aldertree's office, I was tearing up. No Izzy, why!?

Aldertree is already using Izzy, that did not take long at all. Ugh, I want him dead. Someone needs to kill him now.

Am I the only one who thought that the scene with Luke and the deer... did that remind you guys of Twilight at all? Just me.. okay. 

Simon is so wonderful and doesn't get enough screen time. I love his line about aways being nervous. He's so cute. I also like this new Maya and Simon thing. How they interact. It's also nice to see Simon smile and be happy for once.

I will say that I don't this episode is as good as the last one but it's still better than all of the first season. That thing made me laugh in places that wasn't laughable. 

Luke has a sister that is an Iron Sister?! Was that in the books? I never read the last two so it may be and I just don't know it... someone help me out here please.

The pool scene with Magnus and Alec had me cracking up. I loved it so much. I actually laughed and enjoyed the scene. I also felt so bad for Alec... I wonder what Magnus thought when he found out that Alec never had a relationship before. My poor Alec. 

I can't believe that Aldertree got to Izzy and she thought Clary could have demon blood too. Ugh, Izzy, you're smarter than this! Poor Izzy and the Yin Fin... she didn't get to go with Clary and all she's ever wanted to do is be an Iron Sister. At least now she knows Yin Fin is bad now. Hopefully things will work out... 

I don't want the show to just get a quick answer to this Yin Fin drama but I also don't want Izzy dying, I'm so torn! 

I just love this actor playing Luke, I think he does a great job and I want him as a father figure! He's so awesome and sweet and very smart.

17,000! I can't even, poor Alec. It will be okay, Magnus loves you! Don't worry about the past. You're his future, that's more important. 

Simon and Maya found Luke! I like that they helped him through his pain and brought him back, I feel so badly for him, how lost he feels. 

I'm so proud of Izzy not giving up the info she has on Clary. Woot woot!

Though this episode left me with my mouth open...

Paper Princess - Review

From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.







Book Breakdown 

*SPOILER FREE*

This is a fun but very messed up story. It's all about a girl who lost her mother to cancer and is now trying to make it on her own. She's even took up her mother's old job of stripping for money. Then in comes Mr Royal and claims he's her legal guardian and she now gets to live with him and he will take care of her. Sounds creepy but he's actually a nice guy.

There is lots of drama and romance. It's a wild ride that is very entertaining. I was never once bored and I loved how real this book was. They held nothing back. It wasn't washed clean and it didn't having me rolling my eyes at how the teenagers didn't act like teenagers. This was real and gritty and I love it so much!

The writing style is so easy to follow and flows nicely. I actually feel like I'm reading about a 17 year old girl and that's another thing I enjoyed. It doesn't happen as often as it should but I'll take it where I can. So all in all, this is one spicy YA series that I love so much.

I will say that it might not be best for the young ones out there unless you're okay with these things. I can't wait to get to the next one! I hope it's just as good as this one was.

50/50 Friday - World Traveler

This meme is hosted by myself and the sweet Laura from Blue Eye Books.



What is 50/50 Friday? 
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read.



Topic for the Week
Character most/least likely to be a world traveler. 






So this one was fun and easier for me than last week. I had to wrack my brain so hard that I thought I'd go crazy! Well, I'm already crazy so... ANYWAY. Let's just jump into the topic. 



Most - Karou
Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
This is kind of cheating as she already is a world traveler but still, I'm going with this because it so fits.





Least - Kaylee
Soul Screamers 
Maybe I'm way off but I don't know.... I'm only read the first book and she doesn't seem like she'd become a world traveler. Maybe she'd travel some but I think she'd settle down and just be happy. 







Next Week's Topic
Most/Least Intricately Built World

Why I Would be the Perfect Sidekick

Okay so I've done why I'd be a great heroine and why I'd be an awful villain. Now I will list the reasons I'd be a great sidekick, which I think I'd fit the best at. So here are six reasons.


1) I am very loyal to my friends and family, so I will always have my hero's back, no matter the danger.

2) I don't like being in the spotlight, I mean I could handle it but I don't like it. So I wouldn't get jealous when my hero got all the glory.

3) I can be funny and everyone knows you can't be a sidekick unless you're funny or awkward.

4) I'm more than willing to do the stuff that my hero wouldn't want to do. I'm ready to help them with their goal of taking out the bad guy.

5) When my hero starts to despair or think we can never get through this. I'll be there to help them see that we will and can do this. I'll pick them up and set them back to our goal.

6) I'm willing to die to save my hero. Again, I'm so loyal to those I care about that I would give my life for theirs.
